  • Science - Light and refraction. refrac1

    We are continuing to learn about light in science, including ‘refraction’ (when light travels at different speeds in different material: the light rays travel through air and then enter a more dense material, such as water, they slow down and bend into the more dense material). The children had to make predictions before following instructions and recording their observations.

Tracy says she looks forward to reading our finished work.

    This term started with the ‘twack’ of the cane and stern looking teachers. Emerald Class has gone all Victorian. The tables have put into rows and the children have to abide by Victorian school rules – it’s going to be a strict term.

  • Our first week in Emerald Class pizap.com15363426628491

    It’s been a fun first week back at school. We tried a STEM challenge to see who could make the tallest tower capable of taking the weight of some plastic figures and a maths challenge four 4s – ask your children about them. Great to see the children problem solving, communicating and working in new teams. We also got to know what books are in the class and Mrs NG read the opening pages of some of the books she enjoyed over the holidays.
